"The arms race for money that drives our campaigns threatens the concept of one person, one vote."
2016 Candidate Surveys
2016 is proving to be another historic record year for political fundraising. The U.S. Supreme Court decision in Citizens United is intensifying the campaign money chase.
The good news is that there is a fast-growing movement of people taking action to solve the problem. Overwhelming majorities of Americans understand that big-money politics is killing our democracy and support reforms to change it. Elected officials have an important opportunity to enact structural reforms that address the role of money in politics.
We thank the candidates who filled out a survey.
